General Mike Flynn is not Going Softly Into That Good Night

Let’s play a little timeline game here:

12.1.2017 – General Mike Flynn, after being hounded, having his family threatened and driven to near-bankruptcy for months by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his gang of Clinton/Obama hacks, enters a guilty plea for having lied to the FBI in a surprise January 24 interview that was conducted by FBI Deep State agent Peter Strzok and two other agents.

12.7.2017 – The judge who received that plea, Judge Rudolph Contreras – who also happens to be a FISA Court judge – was removed from the case.  Federal Judge Emmet Sullivan is assigned as his replacement on the case.  The fake news media naturally has shown no curiosity at all about why this change took place.

12.12.2017 – One of Judge Sullivan’s first actions in the case was to issue an order to Mueller to turn over all evidence used in the case against Flynn.  More on this later.

12.2017 – 1.2018 – A steady stream of revelations of corrupt behavior on the part of senior staff at FBI and DOJ has resulted in the firing/reassignment/resignations of 9 such personnel, including Strzok, his lover and FBI lawyer Lisa Page, DOJ official Bruce Ohr, FBI Deputy director Andrew McCabe, FBI General Counsel Bob Baker, and others.

12.13.2017 – 12.20.2017 – A series of five motions to intervene on behalf of General Flynn were filed with the court by a “private individual” who has thus far not been fully identified.  The motions are based on the argument that the evidence presented to the court by the Mueller team was illegally obtained “fruit of the poisonous tree”.  These motions were denied by Judge Sullivan because the federal rules for intervention do not provide for the intervention by a third party in a criminal case.  (For those unfamiliar with the term, “fruit of the poisonous tree” used to describe evidence that has been illegally obtained.)

1.31.2018 – Robert Mueller files a request for a delay of the sentencing hearing related to Flynn’s guilty plea until May,

2.12.2018 – Byron York publishes a piece in the Washington Examiner detailing James Comey’s March, 2017 closed-door testimony to congress that Strzok and the other FBI agents present for Flynn’s 1.24.2017 interview did not believe Flynn had misled them, and that he and the agents had then decided not to pursue any charges against Flynn.

2.14.2018 – Today, at Robert Mueller’s request, Judge Sullivan entered a protective order in the case governing use of the documents already provided by Mueller’s team pursuant to the previous order and any further evidence that may be provided via defense discovery going forward.  Basically, this means that Mueller’s team is ready to begin complying with Sullivan’s order from 12.12, and wants to ensure the evidence they provide will be held confidential, and only for the use of the defense.

What does this all mean?  It means that Mike Flynn has decided to defend himself, most likely on the same “fruit of the poisonous tree” grounds contained on those five motions to intervene that were filed with the court in mid-December.  It means that Mueller was, at the end of January, aware that he has a problem, which is most likely why he agreed to file the motion to delay sentencing.

It probably means that Comey and his pal Strzok should have taken more care to get their story straight before Comey testified to congress last March, and it could well mean that Strzok and/or others went back and doctored the records memorializing their 1.24.2017 surprise meeting with Flynn after the fact.  It could also mean that the revelations detailed in the recently-released FISA Abuse Memo have provided Flynn’s lawyers with proof that Flynn was illegally surveilled by the Obama thugs.  And it could also mean that there are relevant exchanges of information in the thousands of texts between Strzok and Page that have yet to be released to the public.

Finally, for me it means that I just cannot wait to find out who it was that filed those motions to intervene on Flynn’s behalf back in December.  I suspect we’ll all be familiar with the name when it is ultimately revealed.

The good guys almost always win in the end, and General Mike Flynn is definitely one of the good guys.

That is all.

The Evening Campaign Update: A Really Bad Week For The Deep State Cabal

The week began with release of the FISA Abuse Memo and the fake media/Democrat campaign to try to diminish the importance of that bombshell detailing of the organized corruption at the high levels of the Obama FBI and DOJ.  In the midst of a wide-ranging interview with Bret Baier, House Intel Committee Chairman Devin Nunes dropped the huge bomb that his next missive will detail how John Kerry’s State Department was also involved in all the corruption.  Kerry’s enormous jaw no doubt hit the floor when hearing of Nunes’ comment, and he apparently still hasn’t pried it back up since he’s been unusually quiet this week.  Then again, lawyering up probably doesn’t leave much time for public engagements or scheming with Middle Eastern terrorists.

Next day, some moron UT professor named Steve Vladek issued possibly the dumbest op-ed piece NBC has ever published (which is saying an awful lot, but there it is) in which he claimed that FBI Director Christopher Wray simply MUST resign over the issuance of the FISA Memo.  Yet, despite Vladek’s plaintive cries and CNN’s previous prediction that Wray would indeed resign, the FBI Director’s position remains filled.  Sorry, all you waiting candidates out there.

Also on Sunday, the Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl, and their fans immediately burned and looted half the city.  Nothing like a “victory” celebration in any major city run for decades by Democrats.

On Monday, cranky old John McCain, working with the execrable Delaware Democrat Chris Coons, introduced a budget compromise bill that would include a unilateral GOP surrender on the whole DACA issue.  His proposal was to grant the DACA “kids” (Average age:  26) legal status while getting absolutely no real concessions from the Democrats on other immigration-related issues.  That’s our John!

Bug-eyed California Congresscreep Adam Schiff lied a lot this week, even more than usual.  He lied shamelessly about what would be in the FISA Abuse Memo, lied about its contents after it was released, lied every time CNN interviewed him, lied in an op-ed he published, lied about the process the House Intel Committee was using to get his own fake memo released, and lied about what that fake memo contained.  He lied so much it was pretty much impossible to keep up with, and I gave up doing so at some point Wednesday afternoon.

Tuesday was even more hilarious for Schiff, with the release of an audio tape showing him getting caught in his own attempt to get dirt on President Trump from an agent of a foreign government.  Unfortunately for the over-eager Schiff, the guy at the other end of the phone turned out to be just a Russian comedian playing a prank on him.  Prank or not, if there was such a crime as “collusion” (there isn’t) Schiff would have to be lawyering up like John Kerry right now.

Wednesday was very eventful, beginning as it did with the release of a raft of new texts from the FBI love birds Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, one of which pointed the finger of conspiracy straight at former President Barack Hussein Obama.  It was also the day President Trump told reporters he’d be glad to just shut down the government if the budget bill working its way through congress didn’t contain funding for his border wall, a DACA “fix” and other immigration reforms.  By Friday, he was signing a budget-busting compromise that contained none of those things.

Wednesday also saw the release of the unredacted Grassley/Graham criminal referral on British Agent Michael Steele – who, along with a bunch of Russians, made up most of the fake Trump Dossier for Hillary Clinton and the DNC – that was sent over to the DOJ a couple of weeks ago.  That letter completely confirms everything in the FISA Abuse Memo, and thus has been studiously ignored by the fake news media.  Because that’s what the fake news media does.

Finally, Wednesday was also the day when San Fran Nan spent 8 hours imagining she was a senator, as she put on a fake filibuster for all those DACA “kids” (Average age:  26) who she and her Party were about to throw under the bus.  By early Friday morning, the bus-throwing had been completed.

FBI informant Douglas Campbell, who has been singing to the FBI about his inside knowledge of the machinations behind the Uranium One scandal, sang before the staff of three congressional committees behind closed doors Wednesday afternoon.  His written testimony implicates the Pantsuit Princess and her fake foundation in a classic influence peddling scheme.

Senator Rand Paul put on a real filibuster Thursday night, pissing off a bunch of his colleagues who were hoping to bust the budget quickly and then go get a nice steak at the Capitol Grille.

Virginia Senator Mark Warner was revealed to have been secretly exchanging texts for weeks with the lobbyists for a Russian oligarch in his desperate efforts to make contact with the aforementioned Christopher Steele.  This was all with the full knowledge of North Carolina Republican Richard Burr, who is the Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, where Warner is the ranking Democrat.  If  you wonder why that committee hasn’t been involved in the real investigations into Democrat wrongdoing like the House Intel, Senate Judiciary and House Judiciary Committees have been, it’s because Burr and Warner are both deep state skunks, and the GOP chairmen of those other committees know it.

Finally, in case you missed it, Thursday also saw not one, but two resignations by senior officials at DOJ and the FBI who have been named repeatedly in the Strzok/Page texting frenzy:  Mike Kortan, FBI assistant director for public affairs, and the chief of the Justice Department’s Counterintelligence and Export Control Section, David Laufman.  Laufman’s resignation is effective immediately, and Kortan’s is effective next week.  If you think these are just normal course of business resignations, you need to play closer attention.

These two hasty resignations now bring the number to 9 senior officials at DOJ or the FBI who have either been fired, reassigned to menial positions or allowed to “resign” in the last 9 weeks.  Toss in disgraced former bi-polar FBI Director James Comey, whose firing last May kicked off this systematic housecleaning of deep state bad actors, and it’s an even 10.

In the age of Trump, this is what is known as Winning.  Bigly.

Just another crazy week in America.

That is all.

Today’s Big Mysteries: Why Did The FBI Lie, and Where in the World is Hillary Clinton?

  • Tired of all this Winning yet? – Americans for Tax Reform reports that, with Home Depot and Starbucks joining the party, the list of large companies offering employee bonuses and raises in response to the Trump tax reform has now grown to more than 250.  Somewhere, San Fran Nan is having a nervous breakdown about all these “crumbs” being handed out.
  • Where in the world is Hillary Clinton? I noted the mysterious absence from public appearances by the Pantsuit Princess a couple of weeks back, but here we are, now 26 days into the new year, and still without a single instance of the Coughing Crook rearing her head in public.  In the last 25 years, this is without doubt an unprecedented absence from the media limelight for the Fainting Felon, and we should also note that her partner in crime, Bill, has also been laying mysteriously low during 2018.  No idea what this means – could be nothing – but it is very, very odd.
  • Oh, noes, not Oprah! – Well, the Oprah Winfrey for President boomlet is over.  The billionaire TV personality told a fake interviewer for InStyle Magazine – whatever that is – that running for president “is not in my DNA.”  Of course, the truth is that Ms. Winfrey had reportedly been meeting with campaign experts over the last few weeks, and discovered that her carefully constructed billion dollar media facade would take a gigantic hit in any political campaign.  Turns out that losing her personal fortune is not in her “DNA”, either.
  • The Deep State official fake news distraction story for last night was this atrocity in the NYTimes claiming that President Donald Trump wanted to fire Robert Mueller way back last June.  Now, think about that:  Maggie Haberman, the DNC slave fake reporter who filed this bit of silliness, expects you all to believe that she has a “source” in the White House that fed her this story, but who sat on it for more than 6 months.  Do you believe that?  Not if you have firing synapses in your cranial cavity.  That obviously eliminates all the Democrats out there, but if you read the Campaign Update, you’re an actual sentient being.  So of course you aren’t buying this bit of nonsense from Ms. Haberman.
  • In obvious coordinated response to the fake story, the insipid VA Senator Mark Warner told reporters that “Any attempt to remove the Special Counsel, pardon key witnesses, or otherwise interfere in the investigation, would be a gross abuse of power,” which is, of course, utter and complete nonsense, given that any President has an absolute constitutional authority to pardon anyone or fire any executive branch employee for any old reason.  But spouting nonsense in response to planted fake NYTimes stories is what Democrats in congress do for a living.
  • The White House released a proposed set of immigration reforms on Thursday, which include 1) $25 billion in funding for a border wall and other enhanced security measures, 2) an end to most chain migration, 3) an end to the insane “diversity lottery”, and 4) a very difficult, 12-year “path to citizenship” for 1.8 million “DREAMers” and their spouses/children/parents.  Given that everybody – and I do mean everybody – in Washington, DC immediately tossed a gigantic hissy fit, it must be exactly the right compromise on the matter.
  • First, the California legislature tried to drive every business out of their state.  Now, to punish the restaurants that insist on staying in business, they’re going after the waiters.  No kidding, the CA speaker of the House has proposed a bill that would levy a $1,000 fine on any waiter who offers a customer an un-requested plastic straw.  Next, they’ll be coming for the janitors and garbage men.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.  Can we get that whole CalExit thing cranked back up again?
  • Why did the FBI lie about losing those texts?  That’s the big question for today, now that Jeff Sessions’ investigators at DOJ have made it clear they will be able to recover all of the “missing” 5 months of texts between deep state agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page:  Why did the FBI lie about this in the first place?
  • No, don’t dare object to that characterization of what the FBI did here.  They lied, pure and simple, when they claimed to the House Intelligence and Senate Judiciary Committees that the nation’s premier law enforcement agency had “failed to preserve” those texts due to a “glitch” in their system.  Whomever made that claim on behalf of the agency knew full well that the FBI has gobs of forensics experts who can always, pretty much without exception, obtain texts and emails that even the most sophisticated perps have thought they had fully deleted.  You honestly just cannot get rid of this digital information.
  • So, why would representatives of the FBI lie about being unable to recover these texts?  Did they think congress would just accept that obvious BS explanation and go away?  Did they think that Jeff Sessions would facilitate their coverup?  Did they expect FBI Director Christopher Wray to provide them cover?
  • No idea what the answer is at this point, and it’s something the public may never know.  But you have to believe there will be some pretty damning stuff in what is about to be recovered.
Just another day in lying FBI America.
That is all.

Trump To Mueller: Bring It On

  • Everybody in the fake news media went berserk late yesterday (I know, I know, what else is new, right?) after President Trump calmly and with obvious intent told reporters that he is “looking forward to” meeting with Special Counsel Robert Mueller.  The fake hosts at CNN, MSNBC and Fox News immediately put together panels of about 82 know-nothing fake reporters and “experts”, all of whom said some variation of “he’s crazy, he’s a novice, his lawyers should never let him do that!”
  • Personally, as is pretty much always the case with Donald Trump when he says something like this, I think he meant exactly what he said.  He is absolutely looking forward to meeting with Mr. Mueller because he knows he has the Special Counsel and his band of evil minions completely over a barrel at this point.  The President knows that neither his campaign nor transition team in any way “colluded” with anyone from Russia on anything, and he knows the Special Counsel has no means whatsoever of mounting anything resembling a real “obstruction of justice” case against him.
  • Don’t get me wrong:  a month and a half ago, I’d have also said that the President’s lawyers would be insane to let him sit down with a former Director of the FBI whose sole purpose for the interview would be to try to trick Trump into walking into some perjury trap, which is what the FBI always does when it is unable to make a case on the merits.  But since December 12, when DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz and his year-long investigation into FBI/DOJ wrongdoing emerged onto the national stage, the entire political equation related to Mueller’s investigation has done a 180.
  • Think about what else has take place since December 12:  Our seemingly sleepy Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who had previously seemed to be worried only about which Americans might be a-smokin’ that evil weed, has suddenly come to life.  Since mid-December, his Justice Department has announced the opening or re-opening of investigations into the Clinton email scandal, Uranium One, the Clinton Crime Family Fake Foundation and its myriad influence and money-laundering schemes, the Project Cassandra scandal and now the alleged “glitch” that caused the FBI to “fail to preserve” five months of texts between deep state FBI agents Strzok and Page.
  • Prior to December 12, it seemed probable that Mueller, lacking anything real to go after the President on, would resort to dummying up a false political charge of “obstruction” and then hope the Democrats win back the House of Representatives in November and use Mueller’s work to justify impeachment proceedings.  But now, knowing that Horowitz has spent the last year investigating not just the Comeys and Strzoks and Pages and McCabes and Bakers and Ohrs of the world, but also most likely monitoring the actions of the Special Counsel’s office, Mueller would have to be crazy to try to bring down the President with a phony obstruction case or an even phonier perjury case.  Robert Mueller is a lot of things, but crazy has never been one of them.
  • Then there’s also the existence of the soon-to-be-released four-page memo put together by the House Intelligence Committee which, by the way, was put together mainly using documents provided by IG Horowitz.  Mueller knows that report is likely to reveal all manner of wrongdoing during the Obama years, some of it, like Uranium One, during periods of time when he was serving as FBI Director.  Of course, it is the growing clamor to get this memo released that has thrown all the bad actors at DOJ/FBI and on the Mueller team into a panic, and moved them to start leaking their desire to interview the President to their agents in the fake news media.
  • Remember, we’ve known that Mueller plans to interview the President since December as well, so nothing has really changed here.  The current media clamor over it is simply meant to shove news about the memo out of the headlines.
  • On top of all of that, we now have reports that Sessions’ investigators at DOJ have already begun recovering the 5 months of Strzok/Page texts that the corrupt deep state operatives at the FBI had claimed they just could not find.  As the Campaign Update pointed out on Tuesday, such messages are never just “lost”, and are stored on multiple storage media in multiple locations.  The deep state cabal doesn’t get to just say “the dog ate my homework” in this situation.  The net effect of all of this is that every bit of leverage in this situation, legal and political, has shifted to Trump’s corner.
  • Someday all the fake reporters and fake talking heads might figure out that, when President Trump says things like he said yesterday, he’s doing it very intentionally and with great forethought.  That was not just some throwaway line – it was a statement of fact:  He is indeed looking forward to meeting with Robert Mueller.
  • Look, President Trump’s reality here is that he can either do a structured sit-down with Mueller with his lawyers present, or wait for Mueller to get his grand jury filled with Trump-hating Washington DC residents – 94% of whom voted against him in 2016 – to issue a subpoena.  As Bill Clinton found out, even a sitting POTUS must respond to a subpoena.  I know from personal experience that, when testifying in front of a grand jury, you are in there alone, with no counsel present.  Just you, the prosecutors and the members of the grand jury.  Trust me, that is not a fun position to be in.
  • So yesterday’s remarks by President Trump were intentional – he’s sending a blunt message to Robert Mueller that he’s calling his bluff.  He’ll do that interview, and in the meantime, the House Intelligence Committee and DOJ Inspector General are going to be rolling out the big guns.
  • If Robert Mueller wants to be remembered in history as the guy who tried to nullify a national election based on a perjury trap process crime, there’s not much Mr. Trump can do about it.  But he can make sure that Mueller and his deep state friends will pay a heavy, heavy price for going down that road with the Democrat Party.
Just another day in Trump just laid down the gauntlet America.

How to Cope With Our Fake News Media-Created Alternative Universe

  • If the NFL were any more self-destructive we’d have to call it the DNC – the grand poobahs who run the NFL rejected an ad proposed for its Super Bowl game program by the military veterans group AMVETS because it was “too political.”  The ad simply urged fans to stand for the national anthem at the game, using the phrase #PleaseStand, which the NFL judged to be unacceptable.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.
  • Here’s some advice for you when reading the news in the coming weeks and months:  Don’t jump to any conclusions about the motivations of the various actors in the major Obama-era spying scandal and other stories we are seeing unfolding in Washington D.C.  It is getting easier over time to separate the good guys from the bad guys, but there are so many false reports out there and the steps that are being taken by the good guys are often so subtle that first impressions can be wrong.  So, best advice is to give yourselves a good 36-48 hours before drawing any conclusions, because these stories have a way of working themselves out to unexpected conclusions.
  • One good example of what I’m talking about:  For some reason, I follow @TheHill on Twitter.  The Hill used to be a respectable newspaper distributed mainly on Capitol Hill, but is now just another fake news outlet.  I follow the rag’s Twitter feed mainly for the comic effect.
  • Anyway, Friday evening, @TheHill tweeted a story alleging, based anonymous sources of course, that DeutscheBank was accusing Jared Kushner of money laundering, and Robert Mueller was investigating.  This was obviously a false story planted late on a Friday in the hopes it would linger all weekend and cause Kushner, and thus President Trump, reputational harm.  When I saw the tweet from @TheHill, I responded saying exactly that, and that the clowns that run that Twitter feed are a disgrace to their profession.  But they get that all the time, so…
  • Lo and behold, on Monday, DeutscheBank did indeed deny the story outright, and @TheHill meekly tweeted out the retraction.  This is just an example of the kind of fake stories that are ubiquitous in our fake news media today.  Some are planted by the DOJ/FBI cabal, some are planted by Mueller and his crew, some are planted by congressional Democrats like Adam Schiff, and some are even planted by the good guys.
  • Here’s an example of the latter:  On Sunday evening, a fake story circulated alleging that FBI Director Christopher Wray had threatened to resign when Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered him to fire his corrupt and compromised Deputy Director, Andrew McCabe.  This story immediately did not pass the smell test, given that it was yet again based only on anonymous sources, which is why I haven’t mentioned it in the last two Campaign Updates.  I figured I’d give it a good 48 hours to work itself out.  Guess what happened?
  • At mid-day on Tuesday, President Trump outright denied the fake story, and barely an hour later, the FBI announced that Chief of Staff James Rybicki was “resigning” to “seek other opportunities,” which is corporate speak for he’d been summarily fired.  What do you reckon happened there?  Here’s what seems likely:  Rybicki was the “anonymous source,” having been fed that story by one of the good guys within the FBI, maybe by Director Wray himself.
  • This same process has been used by the President and AG Sessions to identify a number of leakers and get rid of them over the last 6-8 months, and will be used many times more.  So be patient and don’t jump to conclusions – draining this swamp is going to take a long time.
  • Then there’s the story in Vanity Fair that claims the President and Chief of Staff John Kelly hate each other and President Trump has Ivanka Trump actively scouting for a replacement.  Yeah, don’t believe that one either until you see it happen.  Remember that everyone in the fake news media was claiming that Kelly was about to resign way back in September, after he’d been on the job for barely a month.
  • Every day is filled with stories in the fake news media that have literally zero basis in fact.  There are so many of them and they come and go so quickly that it becomes nearly impossible to fully absorb them all.  I told a friend the other day that we used to live in a 48 to 96 hour news cycle, a cycle in which major stories would dominate for 2 to 4 days before being shoved off the front page or the top of the hour by the next major story.
  • Today we live in about a 2 to 4 HOUR news cycle, and it keeps getting shorter.  Some days it feels like a 30 minute cycle, really.  So, best rule of thumb:  If you see a story that appears to be highly negative to the Trump Administration, wait a couple of days to see if it still has legs.  What you’re going to find out is that pretty much none of them do.
  • But hey, when you are living in fake news media-created alternative universe, that’s not an accident, and it’s really not surprising, is it?
Just another day in fake news media America.

The Great 14% Shutdown of 2018, Day 3: Schumer Submits, Snowflakes Toss Fits. (This is What Winning Looks Like.)

  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part I – Late last week, as it became increasingly apparent that the Democrats in the Senate were going to cause a shutdown of 14% of the federal government, various fake news media outlets carried reports predicting the stock market would tank on Monday if that were to happen.  One clown on CNN or MSNBC, I forget which, predicted the Dow Jones would fall 1,300 points.  He was apparently channeling Paul Krugman with that bit of hilarity.  Of course, that did not happen.  The Dow was up more than 140 points on Monday, while the S&P 500 and the NASDAQ rose to set new closing record highs.  Just more Winning in Donald Trump’s America.
  • Tired of all this Winning yet?  Part II – Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced he is opening an investigation of his investigators, looking into the FBI’s claim to have “lost” 5 months of texts between deep state FBI Agent Peter Strzok and deep state FBI attorney Lisa Page.  For those keeping count, in just the last month, AG Sessions has announced investigations into Uranium One, the Clinton Crime Family Fake Foundation, the Clinton email scandal, and the Project Cassandra scandal, in which the Obama Administration facilitated the activities of the terrorist organization Hezbollah in the United States.  Mr. Sessions, who appeared to mostly sleep through 2017, has awakened with a vengeance these past few weeks.  It’s going to be a very busy year for him.
  • And speaking of WINNING, literally every snowflake, social justice warrior and Antifa terrorist on the radical political left went berserk on Monday when Cryin’ Chuckie Schumer caved and agreed to end the Great 14% Government Shutdown of 2018.  One leftist clown named Murshed Zaheed, who heads some group of lunatics that calls itself CREDO, told an interviewer, “Call it the #SchumerSellout, Hashtagged.”  Oooooooh, burn!  Man, when a Democrat politician has been negatively ‘hashtagged” by some leftist nitwit who heads up a group no one has ever heard of, you know he’s in a real political mess.
  • Then again, the clown has a point:  Chuckie did indeed sell out on Monday, folding up like that $9 tent at Wal Mart when he received new polling data showing conclusively that he was losing the PR battle in this ill-conceived shutdown to the Republicans and Donald Trump, who had out-flanked him at every turn.  Oh, the Democrats’ slavish agents in the fake news media did everything they could to try to prop their benefactors up throughout the day, but there is no doubt who the big loser here really is in a political sense.
  • The simple fact of the matter is that Schumer and his fellow disgraceful, anti-American Democrats got literally nothing in the “deal” that was struck to end the shutdown.  Schumer bragged about getting a commitment from Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the President for a full debate and floor vote on the DACA question by February 8, but the President and congressional Republicans have been committed to doing that since last summer.
  • Even worse for Schumer and his Democrat senate caucus, they’re going to find themselves right back in the same pickle in just three weeks.  What’s the plan then, Chuckie?  If Schumer can’t somehow convince Republicans in both the House and the Senate to award amnesty to 3.6 million illegal aliens who are somehow subject to this DREAMer status, then what?  Is he going to order his compliant fellow Ds to shut 14% of the government down again, place the interests of illegals ahead of those of 330 million American citizens again, and make those horrible polling numbers in the new Harris Harvard Poll move even more in the favor of the Republicans?
  • It is equally valid to ask what are the Republicans going to do in three weeks?  Have they actually learned the clear lesson from this shutdown, which is that they have a clear advantage with the voting public on these immigration-related issues, and if they hold firm and don’t panic in the face of a barrage of negative media coverage, they finally have a guy in the White House who will turn them into winners?
  • There is a clear deal to be struck here.  It is completely transparent and unambiguous, and has been for several months now:  The DREAMers get some form of legal status and a long and difficult “path to citizenship” that forces them to adhere to the normal, legal immigration requirements that everyone else who wishes to immigrate to the United States must follow.  In exchange for that, chain migration is ended, the lunatic “diversity lottery” system is ended, and the border wall and other enhanced border security measures are fully and immediately funded.
  • Harris Harvard and other polls show that strong majorities of Americans support every of those provisions.  All the GOP members of congress have to do is stand firm on them and they will win again in February.  If the Democrats want to fall on their collective sword over maintaining open borders, let them do it, and let President Trump tweet them to death from now through election day.
  • Congressional Republicans have never had a more clear path to electoral victory than they do this very morning.  Whether they like it or not, they have President Donald J. Trump (I still never get tired of typing those words) to thank for that happy circumstance.
Just another day in Trump just keeps on #Winning America.

The Road Goes On Forever And The Fake News Never Ends

  • The road goes on forever, and the fake news never ends (with apologies to the great Robert Earl Keen) – After 10,000 texts between FBI Agent Peter Strzok  and his lover, Justice Dept. lawyer Lisa Page, were made public, the three national broadcast networks very predictably disgraced themselves with their fake coverage of the matter.  But then, it would have been actual news had they behaved otherwise, and these networks are not in the business of making or covering real news anymore.
  • None of the networks mentioned the two federal employees were engaged in an extra-marital affair, and none mentioned the most disturbing message of all, the one Strzok sent to Page reading, “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office – that there’s no way he [Trump]  gets elected – but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40…”
  • Wait, what?  The “Andy” to whom they’re referring is obviously FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, but what is this “insurance policy” the two apparently discussed with McCabe, a policy that would presumably undermine Trump should he ultimately win the election?  No one at any of the three networks had the curiosity to ask, much less report on that key question.
  • Nor did any of the networks cover the later exchange that begins with Page texting, “maybe you’re meant to stay where you are because you’re meant to protect the country from that menace,” to which Strzok – who apparently thinks he is the FBI’s version of Batman – replies, “I can protect our country at many levels”, presumably referring to whatever secret “insurance policy” had been hatched in the office of Andrew McCabe.
  • All of which probably adds up to the real reason why McCabe suddenly decided to cancel his long-scheduled Tuesday appearance before the House Judiciary Committee at the last minute – he may need time to coordinate with the DNC and the fake media on a set of talking points about this “insurance policy”.
  • But the 20 million or so Americans who for some inexplicable reason still get their “news” from ABC, NBC and CBS all went to bed blissfully unaware of any of this, which, of course, was the networks’ collective goal.
  • Elsewhere, fake host Anderson Cooper and the PR hacks at CNN had to scramble to come up with an explanation for a highly-inflammatory tweet that was sent out from Cooper’s Twitter feed early Wednesday morning.  After President Donald Trump tweeted that “The reason I originally endorsed Luther Strange (and his numbers went up mightily), is that I said Roy Moore will not be able to win the General Election. I was right!”, the Cooper account quickly came back with  “Oh Really? You endorsed him you tool! Pathetic loser.”
  • Cooper then went into panic mode, first tweeting that he  “just woke up to find out someone gained access to my twitter account. i have not sent a tweet in days or replied to any tweets. We are looking into how this happened.”
  • CNN officials, already seeing what little credibility they had remaining – which, let’s face it, wasn’t much – swirling down the Anderson Cooper toilet, later issued an absurd explanation that said that “His assistant inadvertently left his phone unlocked and unattended at the gym early this morning, and someone took his phone and sent the tweet.”  Which of course is ridiculously and hilariously false.
  • Either Cooper sent the tweet or his assistant sent it in a fit of pique.  That’s the only rational scenario that would explain this.  But rather than just admit that, apologize for the incident, and move on, CNN wants you to believe that some random guy at the assistant’s “gym” picked up the phone, somehow realized he could shoot a tweet from Cooper’s Twitter account, paged through the news to figure out what he wanted to tweet about, and then sent that inflammatory tweet, all while the assistant was working out or whatever he was doing at his “gym.”
  • The main thing this proves is that whomever it was at CNN that came up with this cock and bull story has no future whatsoever writing scripts for James Bond movies.

Just another day in the fake news never ends America.

That is all.
